Sugarfina – My Virtual Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory

24 Sep

I get a lot of junk email. It is mostly my fault as I sign up for every shopping, vacation and coupon site out there. I don’t always read the offers but recently a write up of the site Sugarfina caught my eye. This was probably due to the word “sugar”.

This candy boutique was set up by Rosie O’Neill and Josh Resnick who wanted to bring the best candy from around the world to me and oh yeah, you as well. But mostly me.

The website is very easy to use:

Pick your candy. Subcategories include traditional items like chocolate and gummies. You can look into candies that are classified as “Young at Heart” or “Colorful”. You can also search candy by country of origin.  If you need help or want to buy for a special occasion, Sugarfina has gift ideas and does custom packaging.

Once you are done buying up the place, you can ship the candy to anywhere you desire.

I have already clocked way too many hours on this site and wanted to share some of my favorites with you (hint to husband, family, friends and strangers)


Described as a mini marshmallow drenched in premium milk chocolate, then rolled in crushed graham crackers. Kum Bah Yah!

Licorice Beagles

I don’t particularly like black licorice but I can’t resist it when it looks like a beagle.

Ice Cream Sundae Malt Balls

Move over Ben & Jerry. These malt balls come in Raspberry, Orange Sherbet, Pineapple, and Key Lime. Who says the summer is over?

Chocolate Sparkles

Like M&M’s but better because they, yup you guessed it, sparkle.
